The Shelby Baja Raptor takes the already cool Ford F-150 Raptor and turns it up several notches. We haven’t really talked about the Shelby Baja Raptor, despite that it has been around for a couple of model years. Shelby fits the Shelby Baja Raptor with a cold air intake and a special tune to squeeze 525+ horsepower and 610 pound-foot of torque out of the high-output EcoBoost V6 engine.
The biggest change to the truck is the removal of the stock Fox-branded suspension that the Ford F-150 Raptor ships with and the addition of a new four-corner adjustable shock system that was developed with help from Fox Racing. The new dampers promise to let the Shelby Baja Raptor roll comfortably on the streets or tough off-road trails with no tools needed for adjustments.
The truck rolls on BFGoodrich KM2 35/12.50R18 tires mounted on special 18-inch alloy wheels. The truck is fitted with a functional ram air hood with Shelby lettering on it and striping. Plenty of LED lights are fitted for cruising on dark trails.
The bed of the truck has mounts for two spare tires so that a flat won’t ruin your day. The front bumper is a custom unit with more lighting and tow points complete with Shelby lettering cut into the surface. To make it easier to get into the truck with its big tires and 3-inch lift, the Baja Shelby Raptor F-150 is fitted with metal rock sliders and automatic running boards.
Rounding out the package are custom Shelby leather seats with red trim and Shelby Baja Raptor on the seatbacks. The truck ships with a 3-year and 36,000-mile warranty. The MSRP starts at $117,460, including the base truck or conversion on an existing Raptor is $50,295. This isn’t a Ford factory direct vehicle like the 2020 Shelby GT500.
